Israel Clears Turkish Aid for Gaza But Seals Hebron

  • Zlatica Hoke

A Turkish ship carrying aid for Gaza has arrived in Israel following last week's normalization of Turkish-Israeli relations after six years of tensions. Ties between the two countries soured in 2010 after Israel killed nine Turks on board an aid vessel trying to breach Israel's blockade of the Palestinian coastal territory. Meanwhile, Israel last week imposed a blockade on the West Bank city of Hebron in an effort to curb attacks on Israelis. VOA's Zlatica Hoke reports.
